Epoxy-Coat a Garage Floor

You finally got the tools hanging neatly on an outlined pegboard. But now your car is jealous, sitting like a lump on the oily, dirty concrete slab. You still need to put the finishing touch on the garage cleanup: a colorful, shiny epoxy floor coating that will have you—and your car—feeling like you’re driving into a showroom every time you come home. Epoxy resists oil stains, beads water, and wipes clean like a kitchen counter. Color chips and custom paint colors hide annoying imperfections in the concrete, and antiskid additives give you the grip you need on a snowy day. All you need is a weekend to sweep the dirt out and paint the epoxy on.
